Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- With a superior depth advantage, the Boston Celtics wore down the expansion Charlotte Bobcats for their third straight win. Ricky Davis scored 19 points and Marcus Banks added 13 off the bench as the Celtics raced to a 91-74 victory over the Bobcats. After scoring just one fast break point in the first quarter, Boston outscored Charlotte on the run, 26-3, over the next three periods to coast to the victory. "It's something we have to work on," Bobcats guard Eddie House said. "We've got to get better at getting out on the break and catching the ball and getting into our offense." House scored 10 of his 15 points in the first quarter as Charlotte took a 22-19 advantage after 12 minutes. But Davis combined with four reserves to draw Boston even, 41-41, at the half. Ten Celtics scored in the first 24 minutes. Overall, the bench outscored its Charlotte counterparts, 32-22. "I think everybody's attitude on the court tonight was great," Davis said. "We fed off each other and the second unit, with the young guys, really gave us energy when the starters needed a break." A basket by Primoz Brezec gave the Bobcats a 45-43 lead with 9:30 left in the third quarter before Gary Payton scored eight of his 15 points - including seven in a row - in a 14-2 run over the next 4 1/2 minutes to give the Celtics the lead for good. Banks and rookie Tony Allen made Boston's first six baskets in the final period as the Celtics' second unit pulled away. "It was pretty fun since we haven't been playing a lot of minutes," said Allen, who played a season-high 17 minutes. "We had our opportunity to go out there and show (coach Doc Rivers) that we're a force to be reckoned with. "We showed him that we're able to play those late stretches. I just tried to do everything within the system. As Marcus was getting going, he got me going. His defensive energy on one end created my offense." Banks scored nine points in the fourth period, allowing the 36-year-old Payton to rest down the stretch. "I'm going to take him to dinner tonight," a laughing Payton said. "We need that from our second unit. He played pretty good. He was a good pupil tonight. He did all right." "I just want to learn all of his old tricks," Banks said. "I want to put them in my game. The thing I've learned from Gary and the thing I tried to do tonight is be patient. Slow everything down and let the game come to me and try to get everyone involved. He does that so well." The play of Banks and Allen helped offset a poor shooting night from Paul Pierce, who scored a season-low 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting. "Tonight, I had an off night but other guys picked me up," Pierce said. "When I looked at (Charlotte) on tape, I thought they could easily be 3-0. They are a team that has nothing to lose. They're scrappy and that's how they played." The 17-point defeat was the biggest loss in Charlotte's first four games. "Collectively, I thought they played well," Bobcats coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "We were a little immature, too worried about what was happening to us. They seized the opportunity to put us away when they had us reeling. That's what a veteran team is supposed to do."
